Apr 19, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
FreeWave Technologies, a manufacturer of high-performance spread spectrum and licensed radios for critical data transmission, has announced its partnership with Solarbeam International, Inc., a manufacturer of wireless solar-powered perimeter security systems.
According to a release, FreeWave and Solarbeam offer solutions for intrusion detection applications in the plant automation, defense and homeland security, and many other industries.
FreeWave said the latest innovation by Solarbeam with FreeWave Technologies is a Roadway Animal Detection System (RADS) that not only protects wildlife, but alerts drivers of animals on the road.
"We value our partnership with FreeWave because it offers customer commitment and dependability that is critical within the markets we serve," explained Jeff Porter, director of sales and marketing at Solarbeam. "By deploying radios that are manufactured by FreeWave, along with our leading solar-powered monitoring technologies, we are confident that our combined solution will provide around-the-clock, real-time intrusion detection and perimeter monitoring. Plus, FreeWave's radios are a fraction of the cost of a fiber-optic cable installation, while providing the same level of reliability a strong value proposition for our customers."
The company said the Solarbeam perimeter system is composed of multiple solar towers, solar-powered batteries, detectors (Infrared [IR], microwave, radar, or other sensors) and FreeWave radio communications. With FreeWave radios, Solarbeam can monitor each solar-powered tower individually providing diagnostics, such as solar voltage, battery voltage and the general health of the tower.
FreeWave added that the Solarbeam perimeter system with FreeWave radios will help meet new regulations.
"FreeWave is a great fit for Solarbeam's perimeter solutions and our combined technologies offer a top-notch monitoring system," said Ashish Sharma, chief marketing officer at FreeWave Technologies, "Our technologies are used every day in extremely remote locations with varying geographical and weather factors. These robust features, together with Solarbeam's dependable monitoring system, make an ideal fit for customers who are looking to protect valuable assets regardless of weather, terrain or temperature."
